Philadelphia Eagles Roster
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Josh McCown (hamstring) will undergo surgery on his hamstring next Tuesday, according to sources. The veteran quarterback played the second half of the wild-card loss against the Seahawks on a torn hamstring. Ouch. It's a testament that he stayed in the game in place of a concussed Carson Wentz to complete 18 of 24 passes for 174 yards. He somehow attempted five runs for 23 yards on his bum leg. After stints with the Cardinals, Lions, Raiders, Panthers, Bears, Buccaneers, Browns, Jets and Eagles, McCown is likely to hang up his cleats this offseason after throwing for 17,731 yards, 98 touchdowns and 82 interceptions in his career.
The Philadelphia Eagles are expected to part ways with offensive coordinator Mike Groh and wide receivers coach Carson Walch on Thursday, according to league sources. The Eagles offense was undermanned for most of the season due to injuries to wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery and running back Jordan Howard. Considering those setbacks, the Eagles made due and were respectable on offense, mostly thanks to Carson Wentz, rookie Miles Sanders and tight ends Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert. They posted 360.8 yards per game, 239.6 passing yards per game, 121.2 rushing yards per game and 24.1 points per game.
Philadelphia Eagles left tackle Jason Peters, who turns 38 years old on Jan. 22, said he definitely wants to play one more year and probably two. If the Eagles don't want him back on his expiring contract, he'll move on and play elsewhere. Peters would be in line to make $6 million next season, but the Eagles might opt to go with first-rounder Andre Dillard in Peters' left tackle spot. The nine-time Pro Bowler was once again one of the better left tackles in the NFL in 2019. "I still got juice in the tank," Peters said. "Whether they sign me back here or not, Im going to play another year, or two."
Philadelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard, who will be a free agent in March, said he hopes to be back with the team in 2020. The 25-year-old has been recovering from a shoulder stinger that he suffered on Nov. 3 against the Bears, but he didn't see the field at all in the wild-card loss to the Seahawks on Sunday. Howard finished with 119 carries for 525 yards and six rushing touchdowns in his injury-plagued 2019 season. As more of an early-down ball-handler and not much of a pass-catcher, Howard's fantasy ceiling is limited. With impressive rookie Miles Sanders taking over the backfield with Howard out this year, Howard would likely see a smaller role next year if he remains with the Eagles.
Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said he "won't be back under the same deal" in 2020. The 32-year-old three-time Pro Bowler has one year left on his deal but has voiced his displeasure with his contract before. He continues to be a valuable member of the team's secondary, though, with 81 total tackles (63 solo), 2.5 sacks, four forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in 2019. Jenkins just finished up his sixth season in Philadelphia and has played a full 16-game schedule in all six seasons with the team.
